A Perfect Dinner – Easy Salmon Recipe

24 Sep , 2013  

On Saturday it was one of those days when I just woke up with the urge to do something nice for my husband and surprise him.  He went over to his parents to help them and it was then when I went grocery shopping and I planned the whole thing. He loves fish, and salmon in particular, and that’s why I decided to try an old recipe my mom used to make. Although it sounds fancy – it is very easy, don’t worry!

Salmon with Garlic and Dill

Ingredients:

4 Salmon chops;

 A few garlic bulbs (depends on your preferences);

 A few stems of dill;

300 ml of sour cream;

250 ml of white wine;

 Olive oil;

Cooking Instructions:

Arrange the salmon chops in a pan, previously coated in olive oil. Pour 250 ml of white wine and 200 ml of water and leave to stew. In the meantime chop the garlic and dill in very small bits. When the water and wine evaporate, pour the sour cream and add the chopped garlic bulbs and dill. Leave for 10-15 minutes. Serve with garlic, or toasted bread and roe spread, or dip of your own choice. This is how I did it.

Since I had a lot of white wine left,  I decided to try a white wine Sangria recipe I found on Pinterest. I made a few adjustments and here is what I ended up with.

White Wine Sangria

Ingredients:

1 bottle of White Wine

50-100  ml of White Rum (depends on preferences and quantity)

1 cup of sugar

1 Orange

1 Green Apple

1 Kiwi

1 Lemon

Instructions:

Pour a bottle of white wine in a jug. Add 50-100 ml of white rum (I added 50 ml because I don’t like the taste of rum much). After that add one cup of sugar followed by wedges of orange, green apple, kiwi and lemon. When it comes to the lemon, I cut it in half and squeezed it in my sangria, the other half I cut into wedges and added them in the jug. Your Sangria s ready! Now it is important to leave it overnight, or at least for 10 hours. Serve chilled and enjoy!

Needless to say my husband came home hungry and was delighted to find the dinner table arranged with candles and all these tasty treats! Totally worth the effort!
